Urban Guru Cafe

Discovering what you truly are

99. Urban Guru Cafe – Only One

[ 70 Comments ] Posted on 12.24.10 under David Carse, Isaac Shapiro, John Wheeler, Kenneth Madden, Nisargadatta Maharaj, Randall Friend, Rick Linchitz, Robert Wolfe

The mind wants more. The idea of ‘self’ wants to survive beyond this moment and yet this moment is all there is and the idea of self has NO being and there is actually no ‘me’ in this immediacy of seeing-knowing.  This is actually very obvious right now.  You have to think about a ‘me’ before it ‘appears’.  The pure seeing is duration-less.  Uninterrupted observing is happening.  The mind is time – transient appearances only.  This immediacy is timeless.

The clear pointing on this site does not date.  It is fresh as the immediate impressions that register each moment.  We encourage you to explore as many of these programs as you wish to.  If you are waiting for a new program, please start listening to those programs you have not yet listened to.  Even though the programs are presented in an entertaining format, the essence of the pointing is sharp and cutting and ever fresh.   No one knows what ‘information’ will bring about a clear insight for you.  One may hear a pointer many times and somehow it does not register with its full meaning, then suddenly it cuts to the core.  Therefore we encourage anyone who resonates with a particular ‘message’ to listen as often as you can.  The programs will not dull or get stale.  Something ‘sinks in’ and in an unexpected moment a clear pointer registers with a clarity that dispenses the ‘old view’ and it leaves you present and aware, as you always have been, nakedly aware, of being pure being.   In that moment (which can only be this moment) the ‘job’ has been done (and nothing has actually happened and nothing was ever done).  This naked moment is eternal presence.

The incentive of the Urban Guru Cafe is purely in order for such a moment to open up for you (as it did for me).   Once this has ‘happened’ things fall into place in a very different ‘order’ and many beliefs are dispensed with naturally without incident.  This has ‘happened’ for many listeners.  Be patient and listen to those programs that resonate. – G.

The entire 99 programs on this site were produced on a MacBook Pro using a simple but excellent audio editing program called Amedeus Pro. We recommend Apple Macs and to date we have had no software conflicts and no major hardware issues with these excellent work tools.

The UGC is on 1 Radio station in BC CFIS FM, Sunday mornings at 8.30.  It would be good to have the UGC on a few more stations around the globe. The programs are free.  Make some comments and stay in touch. – G.



73. The mind is Infinite

[ 99 Comments ] Posted on 03.01.10 under Gilbert Schultz, John Greven, John Wheeler, Stephen Wingate

New program……Listen up. How anyone could miss what is being pointed out is remarkable.  Approximately 36 hours of programs and seeking is still happening?

The grasping consciousness known as ‘the seeker’ ignores the obvious and wants ‘God himself’ to come down out of the clouds and be his personal teacher. Sadly many believe that God has done just that. It is all Bunkum.

Music inclusions:  Canned Heat, Radiohead, The Swell Season, Zero 7, Jethro Tull, Bob Dylan, Rivertriibe, The Kinks and Pipkins with “Give me dat thing”.

The UGC is Phenomena. Everything is phenomena. Put another nickle in the Nickelodeon. This unprecedented ‘service’ is free but there are costs involved. Donate a small amount to keep this site going, if you find some value in it. You might even feel good about it.

Everything is Consciousness – there are no exceptions.

20. John Wheeler – Crashing the Californian Guru Game ****

[ 113 Comments ] Posted on 11.04.08 under John Wheeler, Podcast

This program looks at the very obvious difference between the direct message with its immediate evidence in direct and immediate experiencing and the more commonly believed in spiritual concepts of some kind of ‘future deliverance’ and the fact that that is all based on belief and hope.

“What is the truth of who you are” part 2 follows up later.

johnwheeler111@yahoo.com  is the contact address for John.

Music by The Beatles, Sonny and Cher, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Queen, The Mamas and Papas, Fleetwood Mac, The Moody Blues and Paul Simon.

19. John Wheeler – What is the truth of who you are? – part 1

[ 133 Comments ] Posted on 10.24.08 under John Wheeler, Podcast

John Wheeler tells us that the very nature of our being is that which is being pointed to – and it does not need to be found.  It cannot be denied and we do not come to it with the mind, because it is prior to the mind.  It is always right here, right now, in your direct experience-ing.  It is perfectly whole and complete – it needs no enhancement – there is no ‘becoming’ to it.

Music from Mercan Dede‘s excellent new CD ‘800’ – and some beautiful guitar pieces by Gerardo Nunez.
